Yachtspotting in the BVI

The first week of May was more like Megayacht Mania Week at the famed Bitter End Yacht Club, where the PMY staff gathered for our annual staff meeting. In fact, so many famous yachts visited the waters of North Sound in Virgin Gorda that a turnstile should have been put in place. You're looking at the Westport Resolute (above) and the Christensen Thirteen (the ex-Barchetta, below).

Also spotted that week: the Benetti Domani, the Feadship Gallant Lady and the Broward Lady Francis IV . If I'd had a dollar for each time someone asked me, "Which yacht is that?" I'd own one instead of simply write about them.

Thirteen is in Boothbay Harbor, docked at the Carousel Marina. Who does own this boat?

Anonymous said...

"Thirteen" tied up at the Carousel Marina in Boothbay Harbor, ME, before the first visible sunset of the week here, on July 19, 2009. Sixteen lobster dinners were delivered aboard from The Whale's Tale Restaurant, there. She was still there at 9:00 pm. "Texas oilmen", are rumored to be the owners at a price tag near $43,000,000 - but that's as like as not to be euphemistic and/or apochrophal.

is there a registry of boat owners online through the Coast Guard or other agency? Thirteen was impressive at Wentworth Hotel MArina, New Castle, NH. The also impressive "Lady Kath" is there now and "Aquasition" was in last month.

Thirteen is still moored up in Solomons Island, near the Tikki Bar, walked past it this morning, who is on the yacht?

Anonymous said...

Just left Solomons Island MD today - was here all week, I'm curious who was on board and why visiting for an entire week. Enjoyed seeing her every morning as I walked by - what a beautiful ship.

Thirteen was docked in St. Michaels, MD, on June 7, 2011, in front of the St. Michael's Crab and Steak house. Saw about 10 staff members walking around the dock speaking English, but I thought I detected a slight accent on one man. A few were carrying boxes of food back to the ship. Dockmaster would not reveal where the boat was registered nor to whom it belongs.

In addition to Thirteen, there was another yacht in the Wentworth Marina today, July 24, 2011. It was the Lady Kath. I was told one of the yachts belonged to Donna Karan, the Designer and the other one belonged to a sports team owner. Can anyone verify this info?

Thirteen is docked in Sag Harbor, NY and just saw at least 10 nicely dressed women get on board. Obviously not boating type after watching them walk in heels on the pier. Too funny.
